Description

Due to concerns about the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, this workshop will be held online.

The Book of Exodus as Story and Gospel

The book of Exodus is foundational to the Bible’s redemptive story, which finds its climax and fulfillment in Jesus Christ. The vivid episodes in Exodus stand as an enduring revelation of the character of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and as rich resources for reflecting on His typical works and ways: bitter servitude; Moses the mediator and deliverer; burning bush; works of power and judgment; cloud and fire; dry path through the sea; manna and water from the rock; warring Amalekites and welcoming Jethro; meeting with God at the Sinai; covenant and commandments; golden calf and near disaster; and tabernacle with priesthood, altar and ark. In lecture and discussion, this workshop will examine literary and narrative dimensions of Exodus with an emphasis on theological implications.

Registration deadline: July 20, 2020

Dr. Thomas Egger

Egger has served as professor of Old Testament at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis since 2005. His areas of expertise include biblical Hebrew, the book of Exodus, Old Testament Christ-typology, narrative and rhetorical analysis, the nature and authority of Scripture, and “objectionable” texts in the Bible (those raising accusations of divine immorality). He has made contributions in the area of American Lutheran history, especially the history of The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS) and its first president, Dr. C.F.W. Walther. He is interested in the theology of Martin Luther’s catechisms and the intersection of the catechism and the Bible in Lutheran teaching and piety.
